TEAMS: Detroit Lions
We’re sure you’re well aware of the brouhaha surrounding Chick-fil-a ever since owner Dan Cathy said he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.” So there’s no need to get into that here. But what will get into here is how much of fan of Chick-fil-a Lions linebacker Justin Durant is. You see, Justin Durant is such a big fan of Chick-fil-a’s chicken and lemonade that no matter what issues the restaurant supports, he will continue to support them. Even if the issue is slavery.

Better Suh equals more success for Lions

Whenever the preseason conversation turns to the expectation level of the Detroit Lions, I usually tune out. A lot of that has to do with my own hardcore cynicism when it comes to our gridiron gladiators.

Lions: Stafford plays beyond his years

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was raving after Friday's practice about the maturity that his quarterback, Matthew Stafford, is showing at 24 years old. None of it surprises head coach Jim Schwartz. "I was saying that it's hard to believe he's 21," Schwartz said. "I mean he might even shave twice a week now. "...

Lions Rookie LB Getting Acclimated to NFL

When the Lions used a fifth-round pick to select Temple product Tahir Whitehead, most Lions fans were scrambling to find out who he was -- and not all were supportive of the selection. Thus far in training camp, he's been impressive.
